Five-time Grammy Award winner Missy Elliott has announced today’s premiere of the official companion video for “Why I Still Love You.” The new clip takes us on a journey in time as we see Missy and The Dripdemeanors performing throughout various decades. Missy even flexes her acting chops. Singer Monica, makes a cameo.
“Why I Still Love You” is one highlight of the iconic artist’s acclaimed new EP, “Iconology,” available now via Atlantic Records/Goldmind. Produced by Elliott, Timbaland, and Wili Hendrix, the EP drew instant applause upon its surprise release last summer, with USA Today declaring it “a master class at the school of Missy Misdemeanor Elliott… The project brings back the Missy fans know and love, with booming bass beats that are the perfect backdrop to showcase her lyrical prowess.”
Along with “Why I Still Love You,” “Iconology“ includes such hit singles as “Throw It Back” and “DripDemeanor (ft. Sum1),” both of which are joined by spectacular companion visuals streaming now via YouTube. “Throw It Back“ – co-starring Teyana Taylor – has quickly proved another classic, earning over 18 million views thus far.
